Innovative Tonometry Tech Helps Emergency Departments to Meet and Exceed Joint Commission Guideline for Disinfection and Sterilization

Diaton Tonometer is a unique and innovative tonometry instrument, unlike all other contact tonometer; allows to accurately measure Intra-ocular Pressure (IOP) through the Eyelid and Sclera without touching the eyeball.

With Diaton use, there is no risk of infection or need for sterilization, as there is no contact with the mucous membrane. Zero-contact with the cornea or influence of corneal biomechanics on Diaton IOP results provides more accurate glaucoma diagnosis.

Diaton Tonometer Enables Emergency Departments to Accurately Measure Intraoclar Pressure (IOP) and comply with Joint Commission Recommendations on Sterilization and Disinfection of tonometers.


The American Academy of Ophthalmology has reported that transmission of adenovirus and herpes simplex virus HIV, hepatitis C virus (HCV), enterovirus 70, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Acanthamoeba, and prions (transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease) could occur from failure to adequately disinfect ophthalmology devices, such as tonometers.

The Joint Commission, Division of Healthcare Improvement in Issue 49, May 2019, noted that “Tonometer tips are particularly problematic because disinfectants can dissolve the glue that holds the hollow tip together, causing the tip to swell and crack. It’s important to note that tonometer tips have been identified as sources of ophthalmic nosocomial outbreaks commonly linked to adenovirus types 8 and 19. The desiccated virus remains viable and can be recovered after 49 days on dried plastic or metal surfaces.

Areas that can benefit from Diaton tonometer:

Emergency departments

Urgent care centers

Ophthalmology clinics, optometrist offices, procedure rooms

FDA-cleared Scleral and Transpalpebral Diaton tonometry technology brings indisputable advantages vs. all other contact tonometers, which require direct contact with the cornea.

Since there is no contact with an eyeball, the risk of infection or cross-contamination is null with Diaton’s technology.

Another KEY item being overlooked in ED Settings is that variability in Corneal Biomechanics influences all other corneal or contact devices, but not the Diaton:

Diaton measures Accurate IOP in eyes that are affected by corneal pathologies, which make corneal tonometry inaccurate and often impossible – corneal injury, corneal edema, keratoconus, atypical corneal thickness, corneal rigidity, keratitis, cornea dimness, post keratoplastics, keratoprosthesis, post-LASIK, high degree of ametropy, astigmatism and many other conditions that walk into emergency departments.

Diaton tonometer can also measure accurate IOP with contact or scleral lenses still being on the eye.
